In Time for Valentine's Day - The Top Nine Places to Find Love
Garden City Park, NY: According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the world population this year is projected to rise to 7,621,018,958 people. That's a lot of hearts out there, and many of them run the risk of being broken if they don't find true love.
In their longtime bestselling title Love Tactics ($12.95 USD, ISBN: 978-0-7570-0037-9), authors Tom McKnight and Dr. Robert Phillips talk about the top nine places where people meet and fall in love. See below for their list, which runs from low to high on the Love Scale:
*9) Coffee houses—Nothing more stimulating than an intimate chat over some nice brew; except perhaps the coffee.
* 8) Vacations—Sometimes getting away from it all is the best way to open your heart and find your mate.
* 7) Laundromats—Many couples have found their hearts going into spin cycles here.
* 6) Continuing education courses—A study partner can lead to so much more than a passing grade.
* 5) Dances—You don't have to be Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers for it to work; heck, you don't even have to know how to dance (or know who Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers are, for that matter).
* 4) Bookstores—A great way to find someone who shares your interests, and also a great place to buy a copy of Love Tactics.
* 3) Fitness centers—People often "spot" each other at the gym (and not just with weights).
* 2) Bars—Sharing a quiet drink with someone can be just right for igniting a romantic flame.
* 1) Online/Dating apps—Although the Love Tactics authors continue to trumpet the virtues of actual "person-to-person" exchanges and interactions when it comes to maybe meeting that special person, the ease and prevalance of dating apps on smartphones has made this a top way for people (especially younger) to meet. Leading the pack is Tinder, followed by Bumble, OkCupid, Match.com, Grindr, and eHarmony among others.
Even with any of those ten presented spots where folks may be able to establish connection, there still remains for millions of people the problem of "What next?" That is where Love Tactics proves to be its most useful. The book presents dozens of techniques designed to help you win the love of that special someone. With each tactic, you’ll find yourself becoming more enthusiastic, confident, and eager to approach the person of your dreams in an effort to win his or her love. Then, for those who have already found a romantic partner but have lost or are in danger of losing that person, the authors present tactics for winning back a lost love.
Love Tactics (now with more than 300,000 copies in print to date) is available now on Amazon.com, B&N.com, and wherever else books are sold. Whether or not you already have, need, or want this book, we wish you a very Happy—and loving—Valentine's Day!
